The time is a very authentic and friendly place where you can take a drink and taste our hamburgers, grills, Italian cooking and African specialities in a relaxed atmosphere. Opened 7 days a week, at noon and very late in the evening.

Le Time was a nice but average place with indoor & outdoor seating. The major disadvantage was that it was located on a major intersection, meaning limited parking, lots of traffic noise, and lots of dust and exhaust.This place went out of business a number of years ago.

un posticino carino e pulito. Buona accoglienza da parte della Chef Abibata Konatè, detta Mamma Africa. Piatti gustosi sia quelli prettamente africani che quelli di origine europea.

I stopped in for dinner with a Burkinabe friend one night and had a nice salad and mediocre chicken chwarma, and she had a good spaghetti bolognaise (which I had to try as it is one of my go to travel foods). The menu has a lot of western options--pasta, pizza, hamburgers, etc, and while I can't vouch for the quality of anything other than the items mentioned above, the prices were significantly more reasonable than at a lot of other restaurants in Ouagadougou for the same type of food. Looking around, I could see that almost everyone else in the restaurant was eating ice cream or cake. When I mentioned this my friend said that the restaurant was known for the desserts, and she takes her daughters there as a treat, and they will sit for hours as the girls eat first ice cream and then pick out a piece of one of the fancy cakes on display.

Poichè alloggiavamo lì vicino ci siamo capitati per caso. Vi abbiamo mangiato diverse volte durante il nostro soggiorno. Le porzioni sono abbondanti e vi è una buona scelta dei piatti. Ci sono ricche insalate, riso con pollo in diverse salse (yassa la mia preferita), hamburgers e persino la pizza.Il servizio è lento e bisogna mettersi il cuore in pace (tempo di preparazione circa 1 ora).Con 8000 CFA si mangia in 4, bevendo acqua.

We visited verdoyant couple of times during our stay in Ouagadougou.The owner is a French guy who lives here with his family. The staff is super friendly and the food is exquisite. I ate mostly fish, but my colleges were very impressed by the meat dishes too. Pizzas are also very very good.The restaurant is secured with armed guards, so everything looks safe. Will definitely visit again.

Somehow we didn't feel welcome, maybe because we spoke English. Our expectations were high, as it showed high place on tripadvisor and we were excited to have pizza in Africa. Service was slow, pizza tasted average, no thrills. I would guess you could find a better place to eat in Ouagadougou, but if pizza is what you want, this is your option.

Lebanese and Italian food restaurant near the Azalai Hotel

Reviewed By pmr2

We had a little difficulty finding this place, but it is on the same street at the Rec Center. There is a nice ambiance in the evening, the service is good and the menu is a little overwhelming. They apparently specialize in pizza, Lebanese and Italian cuisine. I had a Lebanese salad mezze (very generous--good for sharing) and a shawarma. The offerings were a bit on the expensive side for Ouaga, but they were generous with their portions. The noodles in my companion's Lebanese "spaghetti" were homemade. For dessert I opted for the café ' Liègeois" which was worth every penny. It occurred to me later that it might be a good idea to share several mezze with 2-3 other people and that way you would have the opportunity to try different dishes.

Although located in a pretty sketchy area of Ouagadougou this is a nice restaurant with good service and Castel beer ON TAP! The security as you go in is thorough but inside the staff were very friendly and the food came quickly (a rarity in these parts).Ordered the Forestiere pizza which was excellent. The base was thin but crispy and there was a good range of toppings on top. With the draught beer it went down very well! The place was relatively busy despite being a Sunday night and so the atmosphere was good. If I was in Ouagadougou again and wanted something European, I would return.
